The ISSUE - “South Africa needs to create 10 million jobs in the next 10 years to become a normal country, economist Mike Schussler said on Thursday.” - Times Live

According to Prof. Peter Karungu of Wits University, South Africa should be focussing on “Blue Collar” jobs.  Trades that would be required in the future economic development plans for South Africa, such as Infrastructure and Housing.  Training is one of the fundamentals in preparing these learners and artisans to not only be employed, but to establish them as ‘Entrepreneurs’ and ‘Job Creators’.


This is where moladi comes into its own:
